We are a new church, recently planted. We believe the best way to change the world is by creating authentic communities of people who love God, love one another, stand for truth, and live life together. Please reach out if you would like to be part of building this community, dedicated to bringing Christ glory, and loving one another.
Elder / Pastor
Mike grew up in Canada but ended up here in Colorado, graduating from Rampart High School and then CU Boulder where he met his wife of 21 years, Nicole. The Air Force took their family around the world, where Mike served as a Fighter Pilot, but he received the call to return to his family's roots and pursue ministry through church planting. In 2018, he graduated from the Reformed Baptist Seminary with a Master's Degree in Theological Studies, specializing in Exegesis (fancy way of saying "How to interpret the Bible").
"Mine is a story of God's patience with a flawed and rebellious man. God used everyday-Christians with a love for Jesus and his word to change my life -- I pray Covenant Grace Church will do the same for you."
Phil accepted Christ as he finished a 3-year enlistment in the Army in 1975. He met his wife Julie through Campus Crusade for Christ at UCLA in 1980 and they married in 1983. Phil graduated from Talbot Theological Seminary in 1986 and went back into the US Army as an ordained EFCA Chaplain in 1987 and retired in 2015. After serving as the executive director of Chaplain Alliance for Religious Liberty (CALL) for 2 years advocating in Congress and Department of Defense for policy or legislation protecting military personnel’s religious liberty, the Wrights came to Colorado Springs in 2019 to help with care for Julie’s mother and have considered it their home since.

THE CHURCH IS NOT A BUILDING...
it is a bunch of imperfect people being built-up as the body of Christ. They are like these stones, rough-around-the-edges and no two alike. They are interwoven, depending on one another, and at the center, Christ binds them together.
